My name is Vivek Naskar. I am a software developer from India, and I work for a multinational company. I started working in IT in 2015. Initially, I started this developer journey at a small startup using PHP. Later on in time, I was quite fascinated while learning about Java. The fact that more than 5.5 billion devices run Java and all the major enterprises use Java in some way or another was enough to keep me intrigued, which motivated me to switch companies where I would learn more about Java and its frameworks.
Cloud computing was also one of my “bucket list” technologies to learn, and fortunately, I got to work extensively with Google Cloud in my current organization. I have a certificate for Google Cloud’s Associate Cloud Engineer.
I am quite interested in learning about open source technologies as well, and I watch lots of YouTube videos, read tons of blogs, and follow lots of great Instagram profiles that keep me motivated every day. In my free time, I love to watch sports (mostly soccer and cricket), travel, go on hikes, read books, watch the latest sci-fi and fantasy movies and TV shows, and keep up with world news. I also love reading about and studying the stock market and crypto market.
I have created this blog with the sole intention of keeping track of my developer journey over time—whatever I am thinking about or working on, as well as my passion for writing and telling stories. Hence, the name, thedeveloperstory, as I believe every developer has a story.
I believe the best way to learn something is to share knowledge and get feedback. This is a personal blog where I will share news about technology, experiences from my journey, tutorials, etc. Sometimes, I would also share some random thoughts about life.
